The Maricopa County Sheriff’s Offices says 44-year-old Marc LaQuon Payne, accused of running over several Phoenix police officers outside a Quik Trip, was taken to the hospital on September 14 and has not been returned to jail yet.

MCSO is unable to release medical information, so details on his exact condition have not been released.

The incident occurred September 13 just before 2 a.m. at a QuikTrip gas station on Camelback Road, off the Interstate 17.

Three officers were hurt after Payne reportedly drove his vehicle at the group, before hitting a patrol car and the front of the store. 

Two officers suffered serious injuries, but they were not life-threatening, according to police. A third officer was able to escape injury, but suffered some minor wounds during a struggle to arrest the suspect.

Payne is now facing attempted murder charges.
